You can also install it directly from your implementation as below: The new version only has a couple changes. The first is a renaming of “VVol” references to… Continue Reading →
When Dell took over EMC, there were a number of sub-company names created for the purposes of distinguishing products across our portfolio. While the company as a whole is known as Dell Technologies, the division I work for retained the EMC name so we are known as Dell EMC (hence my banner). (This is not… Continue Reading →
VMware just released Log Insight (LI) version 4.0. Generally for LI releases my posts are light because it never makes sense to me to elaborate extensively when Steve Flanders (@sflanders) owns this space. You can find his site at sflanders.net where he will go into all the details (over time with many posts) about 4.0 as he… Continue Reading →

In my last post (https://drewtonnesen.wordpress.com/2014/10/10/esa-2-4-1-ga-vplex-vmax-fast-vp/) I noted that one of the futures we are looking into for VMAX ESA is the ability to record alerts against resources. This capability would be completely inherent to ESA. I also mentioned, however, that we can do something similar with VMware Log Insight (LI) in conjunction with VMAX ESA. … Continue Reading →
A quick note here in the wake of our big announcement this week about the VMAX³ platform (http://pulseblog.emc.com/2014/07/08/new-vmax-introduces-new-category-enterprise-data-service-platform). I have done thorough testing of the 2.0 version of my VMAX Content Pack for VMware Log Insight and am happy to report that it will work out-of-the-box with the VMAX³ platform (when you get your hands… Continue Reading →
Cody recently posted an entry that discussed how Solutions Enabler can be configured to send logs to VMware vCenter Log Insight (http://codyhosterman.com/2013/07/10/using-vmwares-vcenter-log-insight-with-symmetrix-vmax/). He mentioned that in order for Unisphere for VMAX to send its information, additional configuration was required. So here is that additional information.
In August 2013 I wrote about the VMAX Content Pack for VMware’s newly released Log Insight product (v1.0). At the time of release VMware was pushing hard for content packs and rode me pretty ragged for 2 weeks to produce one. As a result much of the detail around items like widgets was minimal. This… Continue Reading →

There is also a demo you can view to get an overview of… Continue Reading →

This video demonstrates installing and using the EMC VMAX Content Pack for VMware Log Insight. I presented this at EMC World 2014. The demo was created using VMware Log Insight v1.5 and the EMC VMAX Content Pack 1.5.1 (includes auditing information). Look for an update shortly on the 2.0 version of the EMC VMAX CP.
I’ve been meaning to talk about this topic for a while, but lack of lab resources and other pressing projects kept pushing it to the back burner. I’ve bundled a few things together in this post since they all center on VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF), and as I’ve used the same environment for everything, creating… Continue Reading →
I normally don’t cover VMware’s new releases for non-vSphere products unless we have integration available, however in this case I wanted to point out some new functionality in vROps 8.1. Our Dell EMC Enterprise Storage Analytics plugin just released version 5.1 which supports vROps 8.0 only. Given the close proximity of the releases I know… Continue Reading →
